Description Spencer Harris 2005-12-04 05:19:25 UTC
I have compiled httpd with Visual Studio .NET 2005 (no SSL).  I successfully
installed all files into C:\apache2.  Finally, I installed httpd as a service by
using 'httpd -k install', which worked fine.  However, whenever I try to start
the server, I receive the message "Invalid file descriptor. File possibly closed
by a different thread."

When I attached VS 2005 to httpd to debug it, the debugger pointed out a line of
code in commit.c, which.  I traced the stack and found that the c file was
compiled into msvcr80.dll.  The method was called from within libhttpd.dll, in
source file nt_eventlog.c, in method mpm_nt_eventlog_stderr_open, at line 169,
with the code '_commit(2);'

I believe this is an incompatibility with the .NET 2.0 Framework.  Ignoring the
error will allow the server to run, but I suspect this error will cause problems
in the long run.

see if the sp1 of vc2005 resolves this, I hadn't bumped into it.
